A job analysis is a tool for determining what is done on a given job, and what should be done on that job such as a job description and job specifications.  

A job analysis provides the information needed for virtually every HR activity.  It assists with recruiting, training, selection, appraisal, and reward systems.  It can also help organizations defend themselves in lawsuits.

Ultimately, a job analysis helps increase the value added by employees to the organization because it clarifies what is required to perform well.

Present a job analysis of your current or past job that you held.  As noted above, a Job Analysis does two things:

  1. Job Description – tells about the job itself – the essential tasks, duties, and responsibilities involved in performing the job.
  2. Job Specifications – describes the knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics (KSAOs) needed to perform the job.
